One month after Jenna Ushkowitz got engaged to boyfriend David Stanley, the Glee star was able to enjoy her new relationship status with a safe and intimate engagement party on Sept. 13.
As seen on Instagram Stories, Jenna joined close friends including former Glee co-stars Heather Morris, Kevin McHale and Becca Tobin for an outdoor lunch with a little help from The Picnic Collective.
